Well done, Senator Murphy.
In a tweet on Saturday, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) compared Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to stand for the North Korean team’s entrance at the Olympics to NFL Players’ protests during the American national anthem.
“He’s using [a] ceremony at a sporting event to protest something else. Where have I seen that before?” Murphy asked.[…]
But there’s another problem with Murphy’s tweet: it wasn’t a protest. The Vice President’s press secretary pointed out on Twitter that leaders only stood to applaud their own countries, and Pence sat for every country except the United States.
